Arsenal´s local London rivals Chelsea have already secured the services of Wenger´s prodigy Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, and now, according to a report in today´s Express, the hated Mourinho is also interested in returning to the Catalan giants to try and re-unite Fabregas with his old partner Alex Song, despite interest from Manchester United.
Unlike Fabregas, Song never really made the first team at Barcelona, and has spent most of his time on the bench, but was awesome in his last season at Arsenal in the Premiership and reportedly wasn´t too keen on leaving the Emirates in the first place. The 26 year-old still has many years at the top in him, and could evenbe better now than when he left London. .......Read the full article here
The Cameroonian midfielder Alex Song was in awesome form for Arsenal before he was unexpectedly sold to Barcelona two summers ago for a reported £15million deal. It was widely reported that Song was sold off against his wishes amid rumours that he had asked for a new improved contract, so he certainly didn’t upset the fans by forcing Arsenal to sell him like some disgraced former Gunners.
Now it is being reported that Song is pining for a return to England after being dubbed surplus to requirements by the new Barca manager Luis Enrique, and it would be no surprise at all if Wenger brought the 26 year-old back to the scene of his former glory days. .......Read the full article here
Okay I know that there is still a long way to go before the transfer window opens, but I would like to venture that Arsenal’s involvement in the chase for trophies may give us an advantage over clubs like Manchester United in the summer transfer window, as David Moyes side may not even be able to offer any European football at all next season! .......Read the full article here
There is a new transfer rumour concerning Arsenal, but I would be very surprised if anything came of it. Apparently the former Gunner and Cameroon international midfielder Alex Song could be available in January, after failing to establish himself in the Barcelona team.
Song may have hoped that things would get better this season under the new manager of the Spanish champions, but the 26-year old still spends most of his time on the bench under Tata Martino so, according to a report in the Mirror, he could be on his way back to the Premier League. The report claims that Arsenal and Manchester United are keeping tabs on the situation. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal rarely get linked to their former players when it comes to transfer news and if there is a report, it’s usually an Arsenal legend like Thierry Henry or Cesc Fabregas, however the rumour circulating now is that another current FC Barcelona man Alex Song is hinting at a possible return to the Gunners. .......Read the full article here
There have been plenty of reports about what Mesut Ozil would bring to Arsenal, and he is already proving to be a massive influence, even though it usually takes time for players from other leagues in Europe to get used to the fast and frenetic English form of the beautiful game.
After just 18 months in sunny Spain, former Arsenal player Alex Song is reportedly considering his future at Barcelona, with severe concerns over a lack of playing time for the defensive midfielder. Alex Song only joined Barcelona in the summer transfer window of 2012, and although his move wasn’t as controversial compared to the likes of Van Persie, Fabregas and Nasri, it was still a massive shock to see the Cameroonian leave the club that had made him the player he is today. .......Read the full article here
Dear Gooners, If we are to unite as one voice to try and resolve these issues at Arsenal, we need to look at exactly what the problem is. I wrote an article not too long ago and I mentioned it, but most fans are still seeing red and will blame everything under the sun as to why Arsenal is in such a predicament. .......Read the full article here
To all Arsenal fans, I feel your pain tonight, however some fans deserve more sympathy than others. Those of us who have criticised Wenger’s lack of hunger and ambition for improvement have sometimes been abused on this site. .......Read the full article here
All summer Arsenal fans have been calling for Wenger to address the midfield when it comes to looking to sign players and it seems that the main target man wanted by Gunner fans at the moment is Bayern Munich and Brazil international defensive central midfielder Luis Gustavo.
Arsenal have arguably been missing a proper central defensive midfielder ever since the Gilberto Silva days, and although many will argue that the likes of Alex Song have since had a go at the role, he never really became a true DM and that’s where a lot of our problems supposedly lay. .......Read the full article here
Dear Arsenal fans, I wrote an article a few days ago about why Wenger is just as much to blame as Gazidis and the board, as to why we have yet to see any stellar signings (past and present) and ultimately why Arsenal have not succeeded in winning a trophy in almost a decade. I would like to extrapolate as to why this will be detrimental to the future of our club as a whole. .......Read the full article here
What’s a more important signing, an attacking midfielder or a defensive midfielder? by KJ
As the Arsenal fans grow impatient at the lack of signings, there have been many debates on the players we need the most. Signing a striker is obviously a must. Giroud has had a decent first season but personally has proved that he isn’t cut out to be the striker that will lead us to the title. We clearly need someone else and looking at the rumours, we might be on the verge of signing one on Monday. .......Read the full article here
